How about the SB Email "4 Branches?" At least SOME of that has to be Epic Fail.

What the hell is this?

If a work of fiction fails utterly as an artistic creation , it's So Bad, It's Horrible.

No, Epic Fail is when its funny. Like the picture.

Read it again; it's not giving the definition of Epic Fail, it's describing So Bad, It's Horrible.

Read it again, still bull shit.

Hey, knock off the language and don't change it when it's under discussion. Why exactly is it not true? Certainly, it's not true of Epic Fail, but the sentience is not describing this trope. It's describing So Bad, It's Horrible, and quite well for one sentence. It is not in any way implying what the quality might be of a work that fits this trope.

How about this? "If a work of fiction itself fails epically, it's So Bad It's Good. If it just fails utterly, it's So Bad It's Horrible."

We don't really need this and I think it draws a false equivalency between the trope and the non-tropes.

Also, how could you confuse them? Taking it off.

Why was the picture deleted?

It wasn't.

You are referring to that time it was temporarily gone? No idea. Might be an accident.

While we're talking about the image, I think it worked better on the left. It wasn't pushing text down or overlapping bullet points and a framed scene like that works better if down in reading order.

I meant when it was taken off, I put it back myself. And it looks better on the left.

The image is gone again, with no discussion given as to why. If someone knows where it is please put it back.

The image was moved the western animation section. Granted, this does not seem to have been done with any sort of discussion but that is where it went.

I'm going to restate this point from the archived discussion because there are plenty of dumb pricks in the world who will need things to be as simple as possible. This page is not going to degenerate into a collective store of all bad attempt by tropers to mark anything they don't like from the real world as being an Epic Fail. Nobody did any of it for your amusement and possible nobody else shares in your sense of self-gratification. I promised to burn any such complaints-hidden-as-examples, I'm sure many others will leap to do so and thus they will be purged.

I'm sorry, but everyone, everyone, no matter whom they voted for, sees a Democrat losing Kennedy's seat as something to write home about. Whether you think it's a good thing or a bad thing, no one denies that Coakley is a nigh-inconceivable failure as a politician.

@Twin Bird: And it's because of people like you that makes this a discreated and unfunny joke rather than a funny one. Keep that off the page.
